My guess is it wasn't for the position of "Grammar/Punctuation Technician." :)

It's just business as usual when we apply for a job, if you know someone that works for the company, store, factory, especially if it's someone in management, your chances of getting that job over someone else is much better. I don't think this is unique to Herkimer.

If I was doing hiring, I would much rather hire someone who I was familiar with and had some idea of their past performance and history.

i don't really understand your complaint. other than a job with the village, county, or state, what other good jobs are there? it's not like we have a factory, or a hospital. there's no advertising firms, big law offices, or architectural firms. what kind of job are you looking for? i don't think you have to know anyone to be a greeter at wal-mart, or a dish washer at albany st. i don't even think you have to know anyone to wipe a$$e$ at the folts home.

If you wanna know why we don't have any jobs, just ask Pruneface Katie Nichols and her crew of nitwits.What are they doing to promote business here? Not much, accept passing some dumb ass sign ordinances to torture what few business's that are left. Perhaps there was another motive behind the sign ordinance.Naaaaa that would be too political.

You mean the sign ordinance that didn't let people stick 20 signs on peoples front lawns all over every main street in herkimer?

Maybe those businesses especially the red cross should have advertised in the paper or on TV instead of plastering signs on peoples lawns.

First: Thank You For Serving OUR COUNTRY. Welcome Back!(for what it's worth.)
Second: As previously eluded to, The Job Situation, and Who Gets Hired First IS NOT Anything New or Unique To Your Geographic Area.
Third: Why not look into some VET services available to you.(my understanding is they have many resources and first hand knowledge of JOBs that are slated just for VETs) OUR COUNTRY's VETs DO GET PRIORITY when applying for work, etc.
I realize the search will not be easy. I just tried to google some helpful VET organizations to provide you some information, looks as if you may need to travel to the nearest city to get some support. I suggest if you can't find some phone numbers online, visit your local library information desk they will do the research for you, and/or visit an unemployment office and get some leads from their staff. Just keep knocking on doors and you bound to start to get to know the right people and someone will assist you in getting that JOB you really desire. Best Wishes, may the NEW YEAR be more promissing for US all.

When I read about all the pizza places I was intrigued. It sounds like there are a whole lot of fatlings in Herkimer. That's my kind of town! I wouldn't blame that prune lady too much we fatlings don't have the enterprenurial spirit. I love prunes covered in chocolate.

Just make Herkimer more fat friendly and you will attract a lot of gluttons like me. Usually the places with so called bad economies are run by Godly Republicans. People are depressed so they eat and are no longer depressed. It sounds like you people have it better than you think. Just keep eating all that pizza.

Soooo....Because Herkimer has so many pizza places that is why there arn't any jobs? Is there anything we don't blame on the pizza places? Maybe the reason why there are so many pizza places is because there is a demand for this type of food here.

Clearly you have never seen Katie Nichols bending over placing bricks in front of the jail. That my friend is one Democratic "FATLING", and trust me there is nothing god like about her.

The core of the problem is much larger than your Herkimer officals. Power/Heat, Labor, and Fed/State/Local taxes are all too high. As many have already stated on this thread "there is no manufacturing", and there never will be, because costs are too high. The wealth that remains will be slowly depleted by corporations like wal-mart & Lowes (at least this wealth is going to Arkansas & North Carolina). 20 years from now these stores will close up, leaving the empty shell of buildings similare to the closed up factories that they replaced. At that point there is nothing left, and Herkimer will either be a shell of a Town or the local government will do the right thing and attract manufacturing back. Microeconomic Life Cycle/Evolution.
